A Gerbera flower garden in Godadhordangi village under Aliabad union of Faridpur Sadar upazila brings bright prospect for Liaquat Hossain.
The twenty-eight-year-old first planted 7,000 seedlings on 60 decimals of his own land by collecting those from India in August 2018.
Upon completing his post-graduation from Kabi Nazrul Government College in Dhaka, he tried to land a decent job for a couple of years, but was unable to do so. It was later that he tried his hand at farming and saw success.
“I experimented with Gerbera farming to make ends meet. It ultimately helped me become self-reliant,” said the youth.
